President Trump has again threatened to destroy all of North Korea, a nation of 25 million people. On Saturday, Trump tweeted, “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man they won’t be around much longer!” Trump’s tweet came after North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho said Trump was on a “suicide mission.”

Ri Yong-ho: “Due to his lacking in basic common knowledge and proper sentiment, he tried to insult the supreme dignity of my country by referring to it as a rocket. By doing so, however, he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets’ visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable all the more. None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission. In case innocent lives of the U.S. are lost because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible.”

On Saturday, tens of thousands of North Koreans rallied in Pyongyang at a protest against U.S. military aggression.
